Strangely, the randomly recurring "CURSED PAGE" webcomic glitch phenomenon kicked in while I was editing a commentary, which is a disturbing new twist. Note that I was able to paste in the Patreon text below when I first created this post earlier, but DSL issues have apparently led to disaster as I can't paste in the additional commentary written during my first attempt to edit this post. Whoops!
Today’s Patreon update: In an attempt to scratch out more worktime to complete the long-gestating Empowered vol. 12, I've switched over to a Monday/ Wednesday/ Friday Patreon posting schedule that won't feature the fixed content format I previously used. However, my vast archive of years of Patreon posts—extensive Empowered previews, vintage con sketches, work stages on covers, "damsel in distress" commissions, life drawings & much, much more—remains available for Patrons' perusal.
